Prostate Cancer Treatments
How is prostate cancer treated?
Associated Urological Specialists offers state-of-the-art treatment options for prostate cancer. Whichever treatment you chose, you may trust that our team of experienced providers and staff will deliver the best care possible and will be with you every step of the way.
There are multiple factors that help to determine the best treatment for a particular patient's prostate cancer. These include the grade (aggressiveness) of the cancer, the stage of the cancer, the PSA blood test level, imaging results, and results of genetic testing. All of these factors play an important role in providing the best results possible.
Our providers take the time with every individual to help formulate a very specialized treatment plan. Options will be presented and discussed, based on all these factors, as well as the individual’s age and lifestyle. Everyone at AUS is there to make sure a patient’s questions are not only answered but understood. And everyone, at either of our Prostate Cancer Centers, can help you get those answers in a compassionate, caring manner.
The first big decision when it comes to prostate cancer is, ‘does it actually need to be treated?’ In some cases, watchful waiting and active surveillance are options that not only may be reasonable, but also recommended. These may be especially viable for older men who don’t have signs or symptoms of prostate cancer, or who have other medical conditions that contraindicate other treatment options. However, if the recommendation is that the cancer should be treated, there are several different options.
The treatments for prostate cancer can be divided into those that are intended to cure your cancer (definitive therapies) and those that are palliative, (treatments intended to slow down the growth of the prostate cancer and treat its symptoms). AUS has specific Prostate Cancer Centers for these two different types of cancer treatments.
Associated Urological Specialists offers the most comprehensive spectrum of treatments available today.
The AUS Prostate Cancer Center utilizes definitive therapies intended to cure the prostate cancer in patients. The AUS Advanced Prostate Cancer Center utilizes palliative treatments intended to slow down the growth and treat the cancer's symptoms. No matter where you may be on your prostate cancer path, AUS can provide state-of-the-art treatment options in the most compassionate manner possible.
